Earlier today, I published a post in which Mary Souza complained about the disrespect she perceived that the Tea Party Patriots mega-truck (courtesy of Ron Nilson's Ground Force) entry got from some during Fourth of July Parade. Huckleberries has received a photo of some of that reaction. The guys in the back seem to be holding their ears to block the noise from Tea Party music, which was quite loud, as I recall. That might be the source of the thumbs down that angered Mary. BTW, that is former Lt. Gov. Jack Riggs and his daughter-in-law in the foreground.
